NBC Today reports that seasonal delivery jobs "go begging": They're hard work!


Interim jobs, anyone?  How about manual labor?

The NBC Today show today reports that thousands of seasonal jobs for Amazon and UPS, and other retail delivery companies (I suppose they include Laser Express and FedEx) are going unfilled.  Many of the jobs are around Seattle or around Louisville KY. 

People might find their unemployment runs out, and then becomes a problem after the jobs end, depending on what Congress does this month regarding the “Fiscal Cliff”. 

These sorts of jobs are physically demanding, as UPS puts drivers through a week of intense “PT” to learn to do the job efficiently.
